Forget about Ihop and Denny's and the other national chains of restaurants that serve breakfasts. Alley Cafe in Old Town Pinole is the best place to eat a hearty breakfast that will you for the rest of the day. Many locals frequent this gem mostly because of the low cost of the food and the high quality of it. This homely restaurant serves the traditional meals found in most cafes and breakfast restaurants, but what sets it apart is the amount of food you get for the price you pay. Their eggs, bacon, and french toast are extremely mouth savoring and when the menu says "a little bit of hashbrowns," beware because it lies. They actually give you a lot of hashbrowns and will fill you up. A decent sized breakfast that will satisfy the appetite of most people will cost less than 4 dollars and will leave you walking out happy and your wallet happy.
